  • Indoor and outdoor sport and recreation facilities
  • Community halls and recreation centres
  • Improvements to facility grounds
  • Maintenance Equipment (i.e. lawn mowers)
  • Life-Cycle analysis and needs assessments
  • Emergency Repairs at Council’s discretion


Application Deadlines: January 31 & April 30  – Applicants are encouraged to apply by January 31 as funds in this program are limited.
